Deadline Looms for Summer School 2015 Scholarship

Journalists from the Balkans have until Monday August 3 to apply for a scholarship for BIRN’s Summer School of Investigative Reporting.

Applications for international journalists will be accepted until August 12.

Students at the school will be mentored by Reuters’ investigative projects editor Blake Morrison. Morrison will teach how to develop investigations through beat reporting, storytelling techniques and the art of the investigative interview.

Participants will be able to learn how to obtain and analyse data, how to track offshore companies, how to stay safe and how to keep their data safe and how to make great investigations work for film and TV.

All these techniques will be presented by top trainers such as Miranda Patrucic, lead investigator for OCCRP; Mar Cabra, ICIJ’s Data Unit; Iggy Ostanin from Bellingcat; and Joachim Dyfvermark, award winning documentary film author.
